We positively impact the lives of young people
by increasing their wellbeing and equipping them with vital skills needed for the future.
The founders of Young Happy Minds, Yvonne and Martine, believe in a possible better future for young people, where wellbeing is valued as highly as academic success. Research has shown that happier students perform better academically and we're on a mission to prove just that.
WHAT WE DO
We deliver workshops and programmes in schools to students, teachers and parents that are rooted in the science of wellbeing and positive psychology. Our theory of change is that supporting students in building confidence, self esteem and resilience will close the attainment gap and increase their aspirations.
There has never been a higher depression rate amongst young people than today and there has never been more research on the science of happiness, than today. What we're teaching is a proven Science and not just a self-help initiative, which ensures that the programmes we deliver have rigour and are credible.

*Students who have been through our ten week programme were measured against a control group before and after the 10 weeks using a wellbeing measure tool developed by New Philanthropy Capital.
We are proud to share with you some of the success stories from our work so far. We have worked with Young Offenders at a prison right through to Young Graduates at a consulting firm. We believe that what we're teaching is universally applicable, whether you are moving from Primary to Secondary School or starting your first job.
We have a small but growing team in the UK and beyond. Our goal is to expand our network throughout the UK and internationally. We also have an ambassador network full of people who are experts in their field and young people who have been through the programme and support what we do.
We'll keep you informed about the schools we're working with, our training programmes for facilitators, local events and meet-ups, summer camps and so much more.....
